ALBANY – Music in our Schools Month 2016 is off and running throughout New York State and the Nation.

Many of the local school music programs will celebrate music education in the month of March with special concerts, performances, and activities that showcase their school music programs.

Music in our Schools Month began right here in New York State in 1973 to raise awareness of the importance of music education and to remind us that all children should have access to a quality music education.

Each March, to celebrate Music Education in Our Schools, the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA), holds NYSSMA Day in Albany. The 2016 Joseph R. Sugar NYSSMA Day in Albany was held on this previous Monday, March 7, at the Empire State Plaza.
